Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram faces arrest in the INX media case hours after the Supreme Court rejected his urgent bail plea following which two separate teams of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) reached his residence in Delhi’s Jor Bagh on Tuesday night. However, both the teams were unsuccessful in meeting the Congress leader who is likely to be arrested in the case anytime soon.  

On not finding him, the CBI then pasted a notice on his residence asking him to appear before them in the next two hours. On Tuesday, the Delhi High Court had dismissed Chidambaram`s both anticipatory bail pleas in connection with INX Media case. 

CBI had registered an FIR on May 15, 2017 alleging irregularities in the FIPB clearance granted to the media group for receiving overseas funds of Rs 305 crore in 2007 during Chidambaram’s tenure as finance minister.
